Economic Vitality Committee
Focuses on capital, incentives, and other economic and financial tools to assist new and existing businesses, catalyze property development, and create a supportive environment for entrepreneurs and innovators that drive Ottumwa's local economy.
We freshen up downtown by changing banners a couple times a year and planting and hanging flower pots each spring.
Here to help!
We help local entrepreneurs with a variety of tasks, from working with City officials to adjust codes and ordinances to assisting businesses start-up or grow.
Since MSO was created, over $20M has been invested in downtown buildings; but we're not done yet!
